A polynomial equation of degree n over the complex numbers has n (possibly duplicated) roots.
Actually the theorem states that a polynomial equation has at least one root. However, by using polynomial division of an appropriate linear factor, a polynomial of one degree lower can be formed whereby a second root, third root and so on can be deduced.
